. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver
the last few years. we know what economic impacts this law is already having as it it -- its still gnashient implement -- nascient implementation has moved forward. we need to make ourselves accountable to the american people for this law and what we now know is in this law. i therefore respectfully urge each and every one of my colleagues to support this amendment. thank you, madam president. i yield back my time. ms. mikulski: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maryland. ms. mikulski: madam president, i rise to speak on the cruz amendment. as i said, i'm glad senator lee had his chance. as i said, the cruz amendment would prevent the department of health and human services from implementing funding for the discretionary spending aspects of the affordable care act. as the presiding officer knows of the affordable care act so well and played a major part in it when she was a member of the house of representatives, you know that this would be -- have disastrous consequences. its consequence would essentially defund the affordable care act. they call it obamacar

senate effort to pass new gun control laws. the question now, how far will the president go in this fight? welcome to "america live" on a friday, eastern. i'm megyn kelly. in a vote down party line, the senate judiciary committee approved a ban on assault weapons and urged the senate and house to pass the measure and vice-president joe biden now on twitter saying, quote, encouraged by senate judiciary committee action. background checks, school safety, bans on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but back on capitol hill, the main sponsor says she needs more from the white house in order to get this thing over the finish line. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on foxnews.com live. and so, there was all this kerfuffle yesterday about the exchange between dianne feinstein and senator ted cruz of texas. he challenged her with whether you could similarly limit the first amendment rights and the fourth amendment that protects from search and seizure and so on in the way he thinks she's trying to do to second amendment rights. this was all ov
duck for two months over the summer was that under the campaign finance laws, he couldn't use money that he'd already raised until after he received the nomination for president in august. i believe that our primary process is way too long. i think our calendar needs to be looked at. i think our debate calendar needs to be shrunk. i think we had way too many debates with candidates slicing and dicing each other, and i think they had to wait too long to get to the convention. i'm calling for a convention in june or july. we're going to set up a commission that's going to make that decision. i'm going to be a part of that. i'm going to chair that commission. ut no more august conventions. scommoip we're taking republican thoughts on those changes that reince priebus was talking about. give us a call. the phone numbers, we'll put up for you. we're doing our lines regionally for republicans just in this first segment of the "washington journal" tosmede a few other stories that are out there -- obama to pick tom perez for labor. that's the headline of the politico story this morning. pre

requiring as a matter of law that north carolina coastal policy be based on historic rates of sea level rise rather than on what north carolina scientists actually preaddict. this means that even though north carolina scientists predict 39 inches of sea level rise within the century, north carolina by its own law is only allowed to prepare for eight. king canute would be so proud. further down, the south carolina department of natural resources wrote a report more than a year ago on the risks climate change poses to the palmetto state, but it was never released to the public. the state newspaper managed to obtain a copy of that study. the report calls for south carolina to prepare for increases in wildlife disease, loss of prime hunting habitat and the invasion of nonnative species, but to republicans, these are more problems which shall not be named. in south dakota, the republican legislature in 2010 even passed a nonbinding resolution calling for teaching in public schools that relies on a number of common and thoroughly debunked climate denier claims. in short, bringing climate denier pr

. those agencies, those agencies that put out their regulations are required by law to explain to the american people whether it's worth it or not. they havele to certify how many hours it's going to take the american people to comply with all their new regulations. 81 year, mr. speaker, million hours. 1 million hours just last year were added to the federal regulatory code book in new work for men and women across this country. why is that low? the federal government is borrowing money to spend here. there is no prospect for tax relief on the horizon. taxes keep going up. brand new health care bill in place that folks don't understand. going to destroy their health care system, not to mention add to their cost of their business. and the federal government last year in the midst of this terrible recession, the midst of this difficult economy, added $33.9 billion in additional costs through regulatory activity that's going to take 81 million hours to complete. let's do some back of the envelope math, mr. speaker. 81 million hours. the average work year, 40 hours a week, you wor

the supreme court. that's right. the law that banned the silencing of african americans is finally coming before our nation's foremost silent african-american. [laughter] of course, before the voting rights act black people were regularly kept from voting with roadblocks like literacy tests, poll taxes, and "you must be this white to vote" signs. [laughter] now that law is being challenged in the supreme court by shelby county, alabama. they argue that the law is unfair, because it applies only to states with histories of racial discrimination: alabama, arizona, georgia, louisiana, mississippi, south carolina, texas, parts of carolina, texas, virginia, and alaska, which has a sad history of discriminating against its african american population brian. [laughter] good guy. [ laughter ] he's a good guy. [laughter] but there's one key reason to strike this act down, as shelby -- there's one reason to get rid of this law as shelby county lawyer bert rein explained to the court. >> the problem to which the voting rights act was addressed is solved. >> stephen: you heard it, folks: racism is so
to the classical and timeless ideas in our constitution. it's time for us to revive reagan's law for liberty to expand, government must shrink. we must have a message that is broad, our vision must be broad and that must be based on freedom. cenk: oh smaller government and freedom, i didn't see that coming. was there a single speech that did not mention ronald reagan? >> i would be hard-pressed to find one. that one reminded me of the old joe biden riff about giuliani where he said subject verb, 9/11, you're trying to build this event and the speech really as moving forward. their slogan had something about america's future, and you're doing nothing but hearkening back to the old idealogy of the conservative party and movement and talking about ronald reagan every other sentence. that's not very forward-looking. none of the speeches talked about the very real, pressing challenges we had medical reform with health care costs driving the economy into bad places and the fact that the voting public is going to look vastly different than the cpac attendees do. cenk: that's a great point. let's sh
control. >> arthel: the federal department of veterans affairs putting its foot down on a new york gun law that takes effect today. it requires mental health professionals to report patients they believe could hurt themselves or others. but critics say the new law will deter people from seeking help for psychological issues. senior correspondent eric shaun live with more. >> as you said, under the law the doctor believes a patient is a threat, that information would go to authorities. but now some are refusing to abide by this law and veterans groups are in the forefront. they worry the new law could have the opposite effect, making patients not seek out help out of intimidation or fear. gunnery sergeant jesse jane duff, with the concerned veterans for america, she says not enough doctors can take action and they should take action when dealing with possibly dangerous people. they should do that without sharing privileged information with government agencies. >> they recognize that this is a very, very serious issue to veterans. there are veterans that they want to come forward if they hav
the governor signed new gun-control laws it was a tragic prelude to what was supposed to be a triumphant day for gun limits. the governor signed the bill and afterward said even if washington continues to ignore the please of the people, his state won't. >> i wanted to make sure that -- that again people out there recognize that we were listening, that we do take this very seriously, and we're not trying to create loopholes that could inconvenience or put at risk, law-abiding citizens. >> michael: getting sensible gun safety laws passed simply should not be this hard but today john hickenlooper showed washington how it is done. and then to the very red state of south carolina. mark sanford has gone from the appalachian trail back to the campaign trail, and yesterday he made the transition look pretty easy. he beat a field of 16 candidates, but will have to stand in a runoff race, and things are getting whacky on the democrat side as well. they have elizabeth colbert-busch. this one has a reality show written all over it. joining me now for the robert behre. he's a politi
dollar it seems that we spend, leave the president's health care law in place, put new regulations on main street. and this is what will get -- what we'll get more of. family will continue to fall further and further behind. families who are looking for a job, who either drop out completely an give up working, or they're forced onto food stamps. families that watched wall street grow wealthier as they gain, what, $10 a month in their paycheck? the republican budget changes the course of not just our financial position of the country, it changes the course of our economy. adding immediately 1% growth, closing that growth gap here in this first year. arding more income, $1,500 to a family. over the next 10 years, doing dramatically more, both for families to come. that's what the republican budget is about, about chaining the growth gap, closing it, giving our families a fighting chance again. i reserve the balance of my time. the chair: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from new york. ms. ma low mi: i grant seven minutes to a new member of the joint economic committee, john del
is in the business of making law. the supreme court interprets the law. they strike down the law, they strike down the law. the tests in heller with respect to unusual weapons, to other things, i think do not cover -- in other words, they cover an exemption for assault weapons. >> is that true, cynthia? the supreme court ruled in favor of assault weapons ban, as pointed out a few moments ago. >> exactly. >> i guess you can have the right to carry in d.c. which i don't agree with, but you can do it. >> there are absolutely no rights in the bill of rights that are absolute, as sam said earlier, and the assault weapons ban was in effect for a decade. no one said, at least the supreme court didn't say it was unconstitutional. heller has come along since then, but heller does not say all assault weapons must be legal. it says that authorities may, in fact, pass laws restricting gun ownership. >> in fact, that bastion of liberal thinking, justice scalia said that you can't have regulations on guns. i mean, i don't understand what the argument is about. conservative members of the court saying it's okay
later in the show. >> jamie: new controversy that is erupting over a gun law that goes into effect in new york today. it requires mental health professionals to report the names of patients they think could potentially hurt themselves or others. the federal department of veterans' affairs says it won't comply and senior correspondent eric shawn has the latest. >> reporter: the fact that some won't want to say patients are a threat. that is why they are fighting back against the new law. department of veterans affair they will not comply with the requirement and safe act cited concerns sharing veterans' records and they think is an invasion of privacy. it orders physicians and psychiatrists to report possibly dangerous patients to officials but the v.a. says federal laws safeguarding privacy of records does not require them to comply with the state law. federal law takes precedence over conflicting state and local laws. a democratic new york governor says defends the law and he says it would still be confidential. >> some organizations just say at the beginning of the day on all com
the full spectrum of constitutional conservativism, including life and marriage and the rule of law. [applause] on the life question. it is simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had cameras around me from st. patrick's day to november 6. they were trying to get a second or a minute to run against me in a single ad. they did not get one second, by the way. of they are in the business try to say i did not back up any issue. we battled against life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. at one moment does life begin? at conception. the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those question, they know they lose the debate. i stood on life and i stood on marriage. [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people are backing away from these challenge don't seem to realize, i'm still standing. [applause] why is that? i did not run a campaign on jobs in the economy, jobs in the economy, and beat that drum until i beat people into sleep. that is part of it but the rest of this has to be added together or we can nev
. they have to know bankruptcy law, state law, property law, tort law, they have tremendous workloads. but they keep this economy going. if you slow that down and civil dispositions, where the damages are going to be paid to someone who is the victim of a breach of contract, if you are potentially going to cause this because of criminal suits due to delayed, then you are threatening the efficiency of the legal structure. .. president clinton who signed down into the recently wrote the question is whether it is consistent with the principles of the nation that on history to, quality and justice above all and is therefore unconstitutional, and quote. in the time that his pastor 1996, my view along with president clinton and colleagues, their face and makeup of our families herbology for what i think is for the better. those of us in congress, regardless for religion or party represents you in and nothing relationships you wish to have rights granted to a sitting on sitting on the podium today. i cannot in good conscience tell my constituents that their country does not value their bond,
of law. [applause] and on the life question, it's really pretty simple. i went through the toughest election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing. [applause] now, why
of laws for big corporations, wealthy people the politically connected, and another set of laws for everybody else. that was a really radical testimony that mary jo white engaged in. she admitted, and remember she's a former prosecutor. she admitted that she's taking in account the outside economic impact of prosecutorial decisions. the precept that justices are supposed to be blind to the questions of economics, the questions of impact on other things outside of the justice system. instead she's saying essentially that prosecutors should be thinking--shareholders whether to prosecute lawbreakers. shareholders should determine in part whether a law-braking company should be prosecuting. that's a radical notion. >> michael: that's crazy. people within the corporation deciding whether the corporation should be prosecuted. where in the world does that sit in legal terms? she has a diverse resumÉ. she has worked as a federal prosecutor. she has worked on the defense of morgan chase, bank of america. and don't we want people who knows the inners of how banks work but laws when you t

its own budget. the law says that the president must submit a budget by the first part of february. and kelly ayotte. >> good to be with you. >> greta: and you're not responsible for the president, but are you curious? >> i'm very curious where it is. you think about it, i'm glad the senate democrats are finally going to do a budget in the senate, but basically he's rendered himself irrelevant because his budget is apparently going to come after the house puts forth its budget, after the senate does its budget, and so, where is he on this issue? you'd think he would have a fiscal blueprint for the country. >> greta: now what i don't get? you're a lawyer, i'm a lawyer and maybe i'm too literal about it he's obligated to do it i think by the first monday in february. presidents before him have also failed and not the first time the president-- and he's failed a number of times. and when all of these presidents, the reason why we have the rules, we have some semblance of order. he said now the end of march and now we hear into april. what's the point of these rules and these laws? >>
. the message for the president is that no one person gets to decide the law. no one person gets to decide your guilt or innocence. my question, my question to the president was about more than just killing americans on american soil. my question was about whether presidential power has limits. [applause] lincoln put it well when he wrote, nearly all men can stand adversity but if you want to test a man, give him power. president obama who seemed once upon a time to respect civil liberties has become the president who signed a law allowing for indefinite detention of an american citizen. indeed a law that allows an american citizen to be sent to guantÁnamo bay without a trial. president obama defends the signing of this bill by stating that he is no intention of detaining an american citizen without a trial. likewise he defended possible target -- targeted drone strikes on americans by indicating he had no intention of doing so. my 13 hour filibuster was a message to the president. good intentions are not enough.

[applause] that statement is reminiscent of nancy pelosi when she was asked what is the constitutional basis of obamacare and her answer was, are you serious? there are a whole lot of politicians, democrats and republicans, in washington who have not looked at the constitution in a long, long time. let me answer speaker pelosi. yes, we are serious.
